I came to WOW’s Circle Leadership training in search of a tool that I could use in both personal and professional settings. I was unfamiliar with circle as a form of leadership, but I was drawn to its core principles of equality, collaboration, and group connection. With each class I gained more confidence in my comprehension of circle leadership and felt more connected to the women with whom I was sharing this circle. And by the end of our weekend-long retreat, I knew I had become a part of a sisterhood. What I have gotten out of this course is so much more than just a tool! It has given me confidence in my ability to lead, a profound understanding and respect for an ancient practice. I will treasure this bond with my classmates and facilitators forever!
I am impressed with the WOW Circle Leadership training as it prepares us for the process of circle leadership by doing and being all the roles as we attend each class. Kris, Roberta, and Bergith have brought unique and interesting exercises and topics to our classes that brought about some surprises in creativity of one another, but also the ups and downs of relationships in a leadership circle.
The leaders are women who lead and walk the talk of this program. I am happy that I made the commitment to walk this path with them and my other sisters who are in the group. I am looking forward to the surprises that the next year will bring and how I can utilize the new skill of Circle Leadership. Thank you Kris, Roberta, and Bergith.
